29-10-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Munster vs Ulster

Munster vs Ulster

Munster are playing their second consecutive Irish derby after they lost to Leinster in their last match. They will be counting on their home support at Thomond Park to carry them to victory. Both teams have been depleted because of national team call ups for Ireland. Ulster will be hoping that their team is fully recovered from the bug that hit their squad last week, forcing their match against the Sharks to be postponed. Munster gave a good account of themselves in their defeat to Leinster but made errors at crucial stages of the match.

TIP: Munster have selected a youthful looking team with a few players that have come through their Academy while Ulster definitely have the more experienced squad. The visitors have players like Springbok World Cup winner Duane Vermeulen in the team and his experience will be priceless in a high octane match like this. The bookies have Ulster as favourites but I am backing Munster for the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 2.85, Playabets 2.80 and Sunbet 2.85

PREDICTION

Munster have made no secret that they are going through a rebuilding phase under new manager Graham Roundtree and he will be looking at which of these youngsters can handle the pressure. The home team does have international quality with players like Malakai Fekitoa and Jack O’Donoghue have been selected. Ulster will be glad that James Hume is back in action after missing the early part of the season with injury. The visitors look to have the obvious edge in the halfbacks as the home team has a very inexperienced pairing at nine and ten. We are backing Munster to win this match by 4 points.
